About this grant

The Africa Grantmakers’ Affinity Group, a project of the Tides Center, is a network of organizations and individuals that fund efforts which benefit communities in Africa. Its main objective is to build a strong network of funders that are informed and connected in order to have robust, effective, and responsive philanthropy that benefits African communities. Past support has enabled the project to convene funders working in Africa, establish a network of support organizations working in Africa, and share knowledge on developments and trends in Africa through various communication mediums. This grant will enable the grantee to continue hosting the annual conference, including hosting the 2020 conference in Johannesburg. In addition, the Africa Grantmakers’ Affinity Group will host webinars and specific regional meetings and generate knowledge on trends and funding that is targeting Africa.
